Got a new calendar or electronic device for Christmas? There's already a date for your 2017 diary, as details of the latest Camden Rocks music festival have been announced.

Camden Rocks returns on Saturday 3rd June 2017, with 250 bands playing across 25 Camden venues for 24 hours of concentrated music brilliance.

The first wave of acts has just been revealed, and includes punk legends The Damned alongside Orange Goblin, The Ruts DC, Hey! Hello!, The Urban Voodoo Machine and Young Kato.

Festival organiser Chris McCormack continues to run the event in order to recognise up-and-coming rock talent as well as to strengthen Camden Borough's reputation as London’s most vibrant live music scene.

Upon some of the headline acts being announced, The Damned's Captain Sensible commented: “Camden Market is partially responsible for the sartorial disaster that is Captain Sensible, as I’ve purchased more stage clobber there than anywhere else. And Camden was punk central in the 70s too so in some respects The Damned playing Camden Rocks is a return to the scene of the crime. We’ll probably time-warp the set list to reflect the 40th Anniversary of punk, so expect a lively one!”

Attendees only need one ticket to attend the whole festival, and more details can be found at
